After my last blog post, I decided to write about lacking motivation. That was six months ago. It speaks for itself, really.
We associate the word “laboratory” with beakers and test tubes filled with pretty, colourful liquids. I think a more appropriate symbol would be a handwritten note saying something like “OUT OF ORDER”, “DO NOT TOUCH ON PAIN OF DEATH” or “A PIGEON HAS ESCAPED I AM TRYING TO CATCH IT PLEASE DON’T OPEN THE DOOR.”
Research is not a recipe. Research is trying to make a cake when all you have are peanuts, sugar and ham, and the oven is on fire.
